Postgraduate Awards (PGAs)
PGAs are available for some modules. These are 20 credit stand-alone academic awards that may be taken on their own and/or used to count towards a larger award. Available PGAs are detailed in the relevant course pages. If you have any further questions about PGAs please contact email@example.com or call 02476 524617. Please note that there is no application fee for PGAs. There will be a fee if you upgrade from a PGA to a higher qualification.
Career Studies - Accreditation of prior accredited or experiential learning (APL)
APL may be available subject to a detailed application process. The prior learning should have taken place within the last 5 years (N.B. special rules apply to PGAs and APL and you are advised to contact the course team to discuss). APL may be accepted for no more than one-third of a course (i.e. 20 credits PG Certificate, 40 credits PG Diploma or 60 credits MA). It is the applicant's responsibility to show clearly how the learning outcomes within modules in the receiving programme have been met at the postgraduate level. All applications will need to be completed prior to being accepted for admission. Early application is advised as it can take 2 or 3 months or longer to process APL applications. This is in addition to the time needed to apply for the course. Official evidence of award, modules, credits, level, learning outcomes, and coursework will be needed. Please contact us for the correct form and more information if needed. For full guidance on applying for APL please see the University webpageLink opens in a new window.
Career Education, Information and Guidance in Higher Education (CEIGHE) applicants
All applicants are required to have an informal interview with the Course Director prior to acceptance. This provides an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the collaborative nature of the course. It also helps us to assess suitability for the programme. In the online application form, the employment section entitled Employment/Professional Experience must be completed showing current employer, job title, dates employed and details about the role and the nature of any career development or work experience support service provided.
